Nespresso has taken inspiration from the rich coffee culture of Italy to create two new Limited Edition Grand Cru coffees. Napoli and Trieste are two unique Italian cities that are equally passionate about coffee yet have distinctly different coffee cultures. Nespresso has chosen to celebrate the two cities with the release of its latest Limited Editions Napoli and Trieste, taking Club Members and coffee lovers on a tasting tour of the namesake cities.
The Nespresso Trieste Limited Edition is a reflection of the rich and varied cultural experience that the city of Trieste offers locals and tourists alike. Home to a mix of German, Latin and Slavic cultures, resident coffee lovers enjoy their ritual in a variety of ways – with milk, without milk, long or short.
Heaving with life, Napoli is a behemoth of culture in the history of Europe and a vibrant city in the south of Italy. Coffee has a special place in the heart of Neapolitans who enjoy their coffee short and dark. Napoli was home to the first domestic coffee machine, bringing the concentrated ‘Black Gold’ into the home. The Nespresso Napoli Limited Edition embodies this history with its high intensity and body. It reveals fine, smoky notes and an aromatic profile of wood and dried black tea leaves.
Unique and contrasting, Trieste and Napoli represent Nespresso’s interpretation of these two emblematic cities and their coffee cultures. Coffee lovers can embark on a tasting tour by discovering and comparing the Trieste and Napoli Limited Edition coffees side by side, together with the Nespresso Maestria or Gran Maestria machines. The retro-designed machine range was inspired by traditional barista equipment and creates a truly authentic Italian coffee experience.
